Moving Day® Twin Cities

Movin' & Shakin' with Ed

Welcome to our Moving Day® Team Page - Movin' & Shakin' with Ed! 

In the United States, 50,000-60,000 new cases of Parkinson's disease (PD) are diagnosed each year, adding to the one million people who currently have PD.

As you may know, someone we call Ed, Dad, Papa and our friend was diagnosed with Parkinson's disease in 2013. After a few years, his Parkinson's had progressed and he decided to proceed in determining if he would be a good candidate for Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) surgery. It was decided that he was a good candidate and recently underwent phase I and II of the surgery. He is now awaiting the controls to be turned on and programmed for his needs.

Join our team for the local National Parkinson Foundation (NPF) Moving Day® walk, the first nationwide grassroots campaign that spotlights the disease on a national level and gives the chance to raise awareness and funds in our own community. Your support will help NPF continue improving the quality of care for those living with Parkinson's disease and someone near and dear to our hearts.
